Professional Organizations

Dr. Colter has served as president of the Western Indiana Dental Association, president of the Indiana Association of Orthodontists, and as a board member for the Indiana Association of Orthodontists.

Dr Colter participates in the Donated Orthodontic Services (DOS) Program which reflects concern among orthodontists about the public’s access to orthodontic treatment. The Indiana Assocation of Orthodontists collaborates with the Dental Lifeline Network to offer the DOS program. The DOS program provides free or low-cost orthodontic care to children whose families cannot afford needed orthodontic treatment.
